For the price - you can't beat this brief first lesson. The speaker is clear and articulate and explains the words well. The only recommendation I have is to allow a longer pause or space so one can practice the words. Overall, I enjoyed and will look into other lessons.
I read this many years ago for school. Since I knew the basic story line - I was not as engaged as other books I have read. This is probably one I would go back to from time to time. It keeps me grounded -- since at one point in my life, I thought I lived in the "Best of All Possible Worlds."
Magical writing - very descriptive. I found it intriguing to consider the life of a young girl growing up in Nazi Germany.
Love the idea of this book, and I am a Star Wars fan. However, I don't feel as strongly as others that have reviewed this book. I have seen many five star reviews, and it was well done, but I guess the audible version left me wanting more.
I am torn between 3 and 4 stars - so 3.5. I did like this coming of age story. I always have fun with stories when they reference areas I know. So, since this story talks about growing up in Central Florida, and Winter Park High School - that is a plus. Good story.
I have now read all three prequels. While I wasn't sure in the first two, now I am truly interested and want to read The Returned. I do like that each prequel had a different angle and considered the different reactions and emotions. The concept is definitely thought provoking.
Possibly the BEST children's book EVER! I am officially in love with Neil Gaiman. Very unique and funny story. Love the creativity.
This is another prequel to The Returned. My review is similar to "The First" but this story goes a little deeper. It explores the different reactions that people would have in this type of phenomenon. Still too early to fairly evaluate the book (The Returned.)
Prequel to The Returned. I have seen the French tv version of this story line on AMC. I wanted to read before the US version called "The Resurrection." Since it is a prequel - only had the character development of one couple. It is a little early for a full review.
Although I have seen the movie before, this was wonderful to listen to original version. Beautiful language and imagery. Perfect narrator.
Really enjoyed this trilogy. I would recommend to others. Since I listened to this book - I did get a bit confused since it seemed like it continued to switch on who you could trust and who you could not trust. However, I could follow the main concepts, and appreciated the dynamics of the story line.
